Valenciennes vs Sochaux Soccer Betting Picks
Unlike last year, the Valenciennes should not give cold sweats to their supporters since the club is far ahead of the red zone. On the contrary, they are only 6 points from the play-offs and can always hope to grab a place. However, after winning against Le Mans (1-0), the Northerners remain on 3 average performances with two draws against Rodez (1-1) and Guingamp (0-0) and a defeat conceded in Clermont Friday evening (3-1 ).
For his part, Sochaux is 10th in the ranking and is 3 units behind his opponent of the day. After having been rather exciting at the start of the season, Omar Daf’s men have significantly reduced the airfoil by lining up 9 consecutive games without winning a single match. Recently after losing to Auxere (2-1) and Lorient (0-4), the Doubistes took a point in Nancy (1-1) before dominating in pain Le Mans last Friday (1-0).
